Great location, just 50 meters from the sea
The property has a greater location. It is indeed just 50 meters from the beautiful and clean beach. We were there in August and even in the high season there are not that many people on the beach. The property itself is in the nice garden in the secluded area with no neighbors wisible from the house. House is simple but has all necessary amenities. But we spent most of the tome on a spacious veranda overlooking garden and the sea with a breathtaking view on the voulcanic islands. The property at the end of a small town that has all necessities: supermarket, pharmacy , etc.
The only thing you should be aware of is that the train goes really close st the back of the house, but the tragic is really low it only comes about 6 time a day.
We want to thank our woundeful hosts Graziella and Emanuelle for their hospitality and great vacation time full of tranquility, sun and beautiful sea.
THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR LITTLE "SLICE OF HEAVEN" WITH US
It has been a pleasure spending time here with our friends from Canada. The villa beatifully decorated and comfortable. The garden is charming with views of the sea, the islands and mountains. We had many happy hours watching the sea, relaxing and enjoying Giuseppe's stories, italian and cooking lessons. We felt very welcome here in S. Giorgio and it is with sadness that we leave this beautiful place and the wonderful people we had met. Mille Grazie per tutto. Martha from Canada.
Stunning place, wonderful villa, beautiful view...
thank you for a lovely stay. We enjoyed the villa and the terrace and garden are the best! The views and the sandy beach were amzing, the sea fantastic!
Stay at Villa just right for whole extended family
We booked this villa as it was the right size for extended family (us, our 2 married daughters and partners and 3 young grandchildren), it had a large garden and next to the beach with no busy road (only a track). We were able to view it on Google. We were not disappointed - it had all the right facilities and the beach location was just right for the three grandchildren (4, 5 and 7). There is no wifi but we knew this and have a Vodafone wifi 3G (Myfi) device and for 15€ for 7GB (Italian SIM) could connect all the adults to their seemingly essential devices for our stay! The house even has its own pet tortoise. The house was clean / tidy and met the description. We were met by the owners at the motorway junction to guide us to the house. 10-15 mins walk are 2 - 3 restaurants (not expensive) and an ice-cream shop. There is a reasonable size supermarket (but no fresh fish) and a very good bakers shop.
Recommended if you have a large family group (3 double bedrooms, 2 twin bedrooms). You will need to bring all supplies (bottle of water, loo rolls and salt provided). Cooking facilities OK. Small washing machine very useful. Only think lacking is a dishwasher.
Also flexible with dates - wanted Saturday - Monday (10 days) and we were accommodated. A train line runs nearby but this is not noisy and 2 grandsons rushed out to look at Italian trains, and went on them, from the local station which is within walking distance (tickets from shop not station).
Have a good stay.

Beautiful Villa with fabulous views
Myself and my wife, and our 2 young children and grandparents stayed at this villa for 10 days over Easter. The villa is beautiful with everything you could need and there is plenty of space inside, and for children to play outside both in the garden and on the veranda. The beach is literally at the end of the garden which is beautiful with crystal clear blue sea water. This was a great aspect for us as it was not a big ordeal to get to the beach. If the kids got tired we could easily go back to the villa for naps or for lunch. Sometimes we had lunch at the beach. The local town is just minutes walk away with supermarket and restaurants providing everything you would need. We would recommend this villa to our friends and family. Can be a little windy sometimes but thats nature. The scenery is stunning with lovely views from the balcony. Would have liked english channels on the tv and a kettle for making tea! We had a gorgeous holiday and would return again in the future. Graziella and her family are very friendly and welcoming.
Sicily is a beautiful country and the people are very friendly. Would recommend a dictionary too!!
Not far, and therefore reachable with a short walk, there is the lively small town of San Giorgio of Gioiosa Marea, in the past a fishermen's village. Here you will find several bars, pizza parlours and restaurants where you can taste the typical specialities of the island. In San Giorgio there is also a great supermarket, while the banks are in Patti Marina (3 kilometres from the Villa). In this place there are wonderful sandy beaches and many places to see: we recommend trips to the Cathedral of Patti (4 Km from the Villa), to the the villa Romana with precious mosaics of Patti Marina (3.5 Km), to the ancient Greco-Romano city of Tyndaris (8 Km). Also take a nature walk around the national park of Marinello (10 Km) with its salt lakes sandy dunes and spectacular scenery, excursion can be made to Aeolian islands from Patti M.
(3 Km), to the medieval castle of Milazzo (30 Km), to Greek theatre of Taormina (100 Km), to the medieval town of Montalbano Elicona (20 Km).
